Berkeley Township Scores Turf Field for Youth/Adult Sports for $50k Under State Grant

BERKELEY TWP-On Monday, May 14th at 5:30 pm at the Sam Pepe Memorial Stadium in Bayville, Mayor Carmen Amato and the township will be breaking ground for the construction of a new artificial multipurpose turf field.

According to Mayor Amato, the new all-purpose turf field will host football, soccer and lacrosse games, among other events. Sam Pepe Memorial Stadium already has lighting and stadium seating and is used by Berkeley’s youth sports leagues.

“Initially the field will be used for games, but its use could be expanded for practices and other purposes in the future,” stated Mayor Amato. “This state-of-the-art field is also maintenance-free and has the potential to be used 24/7 since we won’t need to utilize Township staff to maintain the fields. This is a great opportunity for the athletes and residents of Berkeley Township.”

The turf project received $750,000 of the $800,000 in funding from the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Green Acres Program. The Township’s portion is $50,000.

Representatives from Remington & Vernick Engineers, who did the design work, will be on site.
